Bug in Alpha TCPIP 5.7 ECO2 - lpd queue

Bug in Alpha TCPIP 5.7 ECO2 - lpd queue

I'm usually very careful before I call something a bug... in this case I don't know what else to call it.

After upgrading from TCPIP 5.6 to Alpha TCPIP 5.7 ECO2 (it's probably in ECO1 too), my lpd queues stopped working. It took me a while to figure it out but eventually I discovered that the main inbound lpd generic queue, TCPIP$LPD_IN, was no longer pointing to the execution queue. (see attachment)

It may not be a problem for most folks but for me it's a big problem. And it is not working as documented (I went and looked at the 5.7 documentation just to see if HP documented the change in behavior).

I got around the problem by fixing the TCPIP$LPD_IN queue to point to the execution queue.

And NO, this is not an April Fool's joke. And YES, I will open a case with HP.

Opened a case with HP and received a patch kit, lpd_qxcm1001084250_alpha, that fixed the problem.
